Unbeknown to us there was a problem with our double room while we were on the inca trail. When we arrived the guys were worried but had reserved us a four bed dorm to ourselves. I thought this was great as other hostels wouldn't have done the same. And at discount price. Nice quite hostel.

Mama Simona surpassed my expectation as a hostel. To begin with, it is very quiet day and night (certainly you will hear something in the earlier morning when people leaving for Inca Trail, but within reasonable range). very good public facilities, including library, computers, coffee/teas, and various organized events throughout the week. The room is very clean, and very light-weighted... More

This is a really clean, attractive hostel. The rooms are nicely and simply decorated. The beds have down comforters and there is always maté de coca in the common area. My only complaint was that the rooms around the main patio get a little loud, as people start leaving for their hikes and treks as early as 4:45 am. That... More

Great staff (and very helpful), very comfortable bedrooms, really hot shower. Everything is very clean. Good location in the city. Very quiet during the night, you can really rest after 4 days of Inca Trail. It's the best hostel I've ever stayed in!!!

The breakfast is like all of the breakfast in south America, Internet is good, is very central. We loved staying there, if we return to Cuzco we will... More

I had to find a place to stay at the last minute and visited several places, and fortunately found this one which was far & away better than the other places I saw. It's a very friendly place, great decor, comfy beanbag chairs, hugely accommodating, clean, and very customer friendly. Highly recommended!
